On Saturday, August 11th, the phenomenal Eydie Gorme passed away at the age of 84 years in Las Vegas. The nature of her illness was undisclosed. She was surrounded by her husband, son and other loved ones at the time of her death.
Here is a statement from her husband via People Magazine:
“Eydie has been my partner on stage and in life for more than 55 years. I fell in love with her the moment I saw her and even more the first time I heard her sing.”
He added: “While my personal loss is unimaginable, the world has lost one of the greatest pop vocalists of all time.”
His words sadden me and my heart and prayers go out to him and her loved ones. We have lost one of the greats – her magical voice and her infectious personality were the stuff of legends.
R.I.P. Eydie Gorme and thank you for the beautiful music and for inspiring me to bring joy, happiness and passion to my craft.
